Unexpected find! We had planned to go into town but it started raining so we sheltered in their doorway and read the menu. With that we were hooked - Nick spotted Squid ink spaghetti with prawns in seafood sauce and I homed in on beef with chestnuts. This is what we had, sharing a delicious cream of pea soup as a starter, along with the bread, butter and olives couvert.
The spaghetti was good but very rich - a portion shared would have been plenty; my beef was disappointing. The chestnuts weren't fully cooked; for this dish being able to mash them into the gravy would have been nice, and the beef was simultaneously overcooked and tough.
Friendly staff and pleasant ambiance, but the mixed experience with the food would make us wary of returning. Meal with water and wine €49.
